2Nubs's boondock build
« on: August 02, 2018, 11:28:36 AM »
Been getting some good help from several members here. Think it might be helpful for me to make my own thread and maybe cool to look back on one day and see where I started.

Most of you know the run down. Bought this and afterwards realized the frame was junk. Its completely disassembled right now so of course I found things that should be fixed before re-assembly. Hopefully I can have it back going in a week or so. I've not even put a tank through this thing, but I can honestly say I know it from top to bottom and side to side. Everything is getting a good cleaning as well. Sand gets into everything!

MODS:
ESR 330 Trx9 porting
ESR 39mm PWK (185 main, CGJ 2nd clip, will check pilot i forgot the number)
ESR airbox eliminator/intake, UNI filter
ESR Trx9B center mount pipe/silencer
CR250 ignition
ESR coil mount
ESR CR adaptor plate
VForce 3 block/reeds
AFCO big radiator w/AN connections
ESR water pump cover
ESR shifter and brake pedal

Lonestar +2+1 A arms w/ Moog upper/lower ball joints and NOS front calipers
Lonestar '86 swingarm 18.5" length
Lonestar Axcalibar axle
Lonestar billet sprocket hub
Lonestar forged carrier
Lonestar billet wheel hubs w/ Riptide rotors
Works triple rate front shocks
OEM rear (engraved CT Shaw?)

Maier plastics
Alba bumper
Alba nerfs
JL Engineering grab bar
Renthal 787's and clamps
ASV levers
ODI grips

Hiper CF1's 10x5, 10x10

This is what started the tear down..

Hopefully my replacement frame will be on the way tomorrow. Ceaserthethird sold me a cherry looking '86 frame. I also took the time to rebuild the petcock with OEM rubber, new clear Helix fuel lines, high flow filter, and a new screen in the tank.

Things I still need are a lower engine mount bolt and nut. One bolt for caliper to brake stay. One bolt for parking brake block off. New tires (not many options for a 10" rear wheel). One bolt for a arm to frame. Full set of chain sliders/rollers.

You mean like the swingarm? I think they might just need a shot of grease. The needles seem good. The a arms seem like new and will also receive grease. There is also a steering stem bearing, correct? Seems like there is some linkage bearings that aren't manufactured anymore as well.. Thanks for the help!

I would just replace them all.  It might be a while before you get the chance to do it again.

ATVGuy helped me find some hard to locate bolts. Very little parts needed now. 2 Zerks fittings for the top ball joints, a Banshee style chain guide, an upper chain roller, and putting this thing back together. I can't wait to smell that smoke!

Figured I would share the new tag. Relevant to the forum I suppose, as well as a pic of my mutts (no tails, get it?) in case anyone was thinking I had lost fingers haha.

No other pics to post unfortunately. Some more OEM parts have arrived and a nice quick cut off nozzle and filler hose for my VP fuel jug, but that's about it.

Thanks Gene. It only took them 6 years to calm down haha. They good dogs though, if I do say so myself.

Feel like I'm forgetting something... I keep re checking my parts list though and I should be good to go. I'm going to tinker some more tonight and I'll probably run across something small that I need.
